    Register for an eCard

    If you do not already have a John P. Holt Brentwood library card, click here to register for an eCard. This will let you access electronic resources provided by the library:

    • Access eBooks and audio eBooks
    • Access downloadable magazines, streaming music and movies
    • Access research databases

    With an eCard you...

    • Cannot borrow library materials
    • Cannot reserve a study room
    • Cannot reserve a meeting room

    If you already have a John P. Holt Brentwood Library card, you do not need an eCard. Your current card number can be used for electronic resources. If you register online for an eCard and decide you’d like a full-access card later, just visit the library with photo ID and proof of residency and we can update your card with the additional privileges.
